She parties with Jay Gatsby

As promised today’s blog is all about how to wear the 1920’s trend (for her). I’m not talking fancy dress I talking how to realistically channel the trend in subtle and up-to-date ways.

What about this scarf from Beta Fashion tied neatly in a hair band style with the excess draping elegantly over one shoulder? Or what about this clutch from Accessorize, embellishment was extremely popular in the twenties.
